Project Manager (Grade 5.1-5.2)
£35,441.96 to £39,525.91 p.a. dependent on experience

Annual salary will be subject to a generous above inflation pay rise on April 1st 2021

Allen Archaeology are looking to appoint a Project Manager to our Lincoln office on a permanent basis, subject to successful completion of a six-month probationary period. This is a fantastic opportunity for a dynamic individual to manage current ongoing projects and to help expand our existing portfolio and client base.

The role would be best suited to an individual with considerable management experience, but candidates with less experience in this field, looking to make the move from fieldwork to management, may also be considered. Assistance with relocation costs may be available.
You will be responsible for ensuring that all work is of a quality which meets the requirements of current standards and guidance and will be responsible for line management of members of the field team, contributing to staff training and development. You should have excellent presentation skills and be able to liaise with clients, local authority archaeologists, and the general public. The role will involve occasional travel and away work throughout the UK.

Based at our head office in the thriving and affordable historic cathedral city, a stone's throw from the seaside and the spectacular scenery of the Lincolnshire Wolds, there are plenty of reasons to consider a job in Lincoln. With affordable housing, great schools and excellent transport links, we are ideally situated for reaching all of the UK. This is an excellent opportunity for those wishing to relocate or perhaps have a change in career direction. Whatever the reason, you will find Lincolnshire and Allen Archaeology to be a welcoming and diverse place to live and work.
